    “We cook every day. We are home cooks hungry for good food, so we cook. We make lunch and dinner and, as often as not, breakfast, too. And sometimes we make breakfast for dinner.” —Christopher and Melissa Canal House Cooks Every Day is filled with delicious, simple, and easy-to-prepare recipes that follow the seasons and are what we cook for ourselves every day. Our recipes are inspired by what’s available in our markets, what we are craving, what’s in the fridge, and sometimes, like everyone else, by what we can quickly pull together to feed our families. Lunch can be as simple as spreading crackers with preserved lemon butter and adding silky smoked salmon and fresh chives, or floating delicate little meatballs in a rich chicken broth with a big handful of tender spinach leaves. But we also make time to cook seriously delicious food like braised chicken and wild mushrooms with fine egg noodles, or beef brisket smothered in onions for dinner then served sliced on a soft potato roll the next day for lunch. With more than 200 recipes and gorgeous, inspiring photographs throughout, it will make you want to run right into the kitchen and start cooking. Canal House Cooks Every Day also includes essays on the grocery store, the art of braising, making preserves, and much more. By the time you work your way through this book, we guarantee you’ll be a much better cook. The everyday practice of simple cooking and the enjoyment of eating are two of the greatest pleasures in life.
